Buren as icon. His paintings the fabric of solar occlusion in relation to architecture, design on land and water. Itself a become sign of painting. Why paint, when one can buy? Why alter pattern size just enough. Integrates found object with desire to reorient. Cf. Zorilla's foiled tread, Ray's cocoon figure in found landscape, and Lewitt's suspended photographic "sign."
Circuitry, currency, and pattern. Things hanging in the balance. Tenuous relationship to structure all.
